This applies to anything- picking up women, getting in shape, learning a skill, learning how to play a sport, video games, life, whatever...
The guys that we work with have various skill levels, some guys have done 10,000+ approaches and some guys are just starting out. From what we've seen- if you have been a part of the "pick up community" (industry) chances are you've 'picked up' a lot of garbage that is completely unproductive, inefficient and in a lot of ways- makes you WORSE with women. This is also true of guys that have 'studied' dating columns from the introverted and sexually-inexperienced writers from the more mainstream sources such as AskMen.com, Men's Health or Maxim Magazine. There's a lot of junk out there. I studied it for years in my 20s and it hardly helped me out. It probably confused me more.
As you may have noticed, we offer different advice than mainstream dating.
For example, if you want a blowjob- rather than waiting 3 months and then slowly having intellectual discussion about the "Benefits vs. Risks of Oral Sex" with your girls (thanks, Askmen.com), we suggest: On the first night, eat the girls' pussy, then drop your pants, put your dick in the girl's face and say "kiss it." If that doesn't work. Say, "No for real, just kiss it," and put your dick 1 inch from her face. Not only is that more productive and efficient, it's also based on our actual experience. That's just a little example.
So if you're reading GLL.com or in the process of learning for the first time or rebuilding yourself, you will get better faster and get more results if you [try to] forget everything you've ever learned about dating/sex. It also helps to not read other dating/sex material. We have everything you need on this site. For free. That's not because I'm trying to push my material on you but rather there is definitely such thing as 'information overload' when you just start freezing up and you have no idea what to do because there's so much 'theory' aka bullshit in your head that you haven't applied.
